This is it, right?  The fiat money, fractional reserve, ponzi scheme financial system that has been dominating us for over a hundred years is finally developing some serious cracks to its structure that might just not go away.  Right?

Because somebody’s finally going after somebody, and it’s not just anybody, right.  Right, Ilhan Omar? Or whatever your name is.  Somebody is doing something.    The United States Department of Justice freeing humanity from the Big Bad Vampire Wolf, and all of that?  How’s that for a twist on the unbelievable telling of financial story.  And it’s true, isn’t it?

Yeah, right, sure, like how’s the DOJ supposed to save humanity?  Bake a few billion loaves and sell them to the masses – at a steep discount for food stamps?

No.  The DOJ’s going to crack down on the mafia that controls the world’s financial system that controls us.  THE MAFIA of all mafias of all-time is starting to blink!  Think about that for a moment.  Central bankers who have been controlling us through stealing our wealth by raping the value from our currency for over a hundred years, may be finally looking at some pitchforks. 

That’s why the U.S. dollar is actually worth less than three cents on the dollar as we speak.  They’re called Central Bankers for a reason, and the Department of Justice has just charged three more of them with some very serious racketeering charges.

This is proof in the pudding of global justice in the form of an indictment where the United States Department of Justice actually invokes racketeering law in charging the three metals traders.  It’s all part of the biceps flexing, more humane U.S. DOJ efforts to tighten the noose around the neck of illegal bank trading with the help of former traders who have already pleaded guilty.  The U.S. government is looking to convict those who operate higher up the food-chain at the banks.  The masses mouths would water if only they knew about it.

The Feds have accomplished this aura of change through an unusually aggressive campaign featuring among other things distinct language in their indictments that specifically utilizes the RICO Act.

The RICO Act is a law that allows prosecutors to take down ‘criminal enterprises’ like the mafia by charging all members of the organization for any crimes committed by an individual on behalf of the organization.  The Feds are going after everybody.  Just like Kevin Spacey is in dealing with those who might accuse him of sexual assault.  Only different.

GOVERNMENT CALLING BANKS CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE

The U.S. government is accusing JPMorgan Chase and Co. of price fixing, describing its precious metals trading desk as a criminal enterprise operating inside the bank for nearly a decade.  The conduct is being called widespread with thousands of episodes over an eight-year period, Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski told gathered reporters, according to Bloomberg.

The prosecutors charged the head of JPMorgan’s global precious metals trading operation and two others this past Monday, accusing them of “conspiracy to conduct the affairs of an enterprise involved in interstate or foreign commerce through a pattern of racketeering activity,” Bloomberg says.

That language directly references the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, a law often used against organized crime rings.  In the past, the U.S. has rarely invoked RICO law in big bank cases.  But something in the system has changed that strategy.

The use of RICO laws to go after central bankers suggests to many legal experts that JPMorgan may be facing deeper legal jeopardy that goes beyond the several individuals who have already faced prosecution.

IS A FROG’S RECTUM WATERPROOF?

Those following this important legal development are taking sides.  Opponents to the prosecution strategy question whether the Justice Department is overreaching.  Others say the use of RICO is merited given the complexity and duration of the manipulation, echoing the U.S. prosecutor who announced the charges Monday morning, accusing the bankers of engaging in thousands of illegal episodes over an eight-year period.

“That is precisely the kind of conduct that the RICO statute is meant to punish,” Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski told journalists, according to Bloomberg. 

This promises to explode into a much greater net of prosecution as the DOJ is going to end up going after many others, elsewhere. The many tentacles of the global central banking system run deep and wide.  “We’re going to follow the facts wherever they lead, whether it’s across desks here or at any other bank or upwards into the financial institution,” Benczkowski says, according to Bloomberg.

In the past, the RICO law has only been invoked in cases involving small trading operations and in corporate-conduct cases.  It has never been used to prosecute traders at a big bank, until now.  Change stirs the air.

This case differs from previous market-rigging cases in other ways as well, including the number of bank personnel who have been implicated by the government.  JPMorgan pleaded guilty in a 2015 investigation of price fixing in currency markets, which saw one of the bank’s traders being charged.

More than a dozen people participated in the metals manipulation scheme.  Two of them have pleaded guilty and are cooperating with authorities now.

The head of JPMorgan’s global precious metals desk, Michael Nowak, 45, and two others ripped off market participants and even clients as they illegally moved prices for gold, silver, platinum and palladium, the Justice Department said this past Monday.  Nowak was placed on leave last month, reports Bloomberg.  The other traders charged were Gregg Smith, 55 and Christopher Jordan, 47.

UNDETERRED PROSECUTORS

The indictments, which come after the government has already lost two manipulation cases in U.S. courts, are considered a good indication that prosecutors are “undeterred” and are “becoming more, not less, aggressive” in cracking down on market manipulation, Bloomberg writes.

In this instance, the Justice Department appears to be adding a full out blitz to previous efforts to crack down on spoofing, the practice of making buy and sell orders for precious metals futures contracts with the intent to cancel those orders just before execution, to move prices in their favor.

Prosecutors said the three men charged on Monday placed fraudulent orders electronically and by phone calls to floor brokers in trading pits. They were able to generate millions of dollars in trading profits for themselves and JPMorgan and cause millions in losses for counter-parties, prosecutors allege.

The practice began before JPMorgan’s May 2008 purchase of Bear Stearns and grew even larger after that acquisition, says the government’s indictment.  Jordan also engaged in manipulation while with Credit Suisse Group AG for about six months in 2010, prosecutors say, according to Bloomberg.

The JPMorgan investigation grew out of a multibank U.S. crackdown on manipulation of commodities markets using techniques including spoofing.  The Justice Department had already brought criminal charges against 16 people, including traders who worked for Deutsche Bank AG and UBS Group AG.  Seven pleaded guilty, one was convicted at trial and another was acquitted.

SO WHAT’S THE RUSH ALL OF A SUDDEN?

The important question many people are asking is, Why now?  What has changed within the United Stated Department of Justice that would have them going after central bankers, which have always been untouchable with a severe lack of regulatory oversight and only slap-on-the-wrist fines if they do ever get caught cheating at, with zero threat of ever actually spending any time in prison?  For at least 70 years the corruption and manipulation of the global banking industry has been protected by the federal government of the United States that has acted like paid protection to the central banking mafia.  Government officials and mafia central bankers alike profited by the billions while most everyone else lost everything.

So again, the question must be asked, What has really changed?

Could this media release behind DOJ aggression toward big banking merely be a political headline grabbing move to keep U.S. citizens’ eyes away from the threat of nuclear annihilation that we all face, as the U.S. dollar continues to debase toward nothingness?  To make the Trump Administration look good, running toward the 2020 election? 

Or could this be a case of forces loyal to the President using a sledgehammer on a fly by slamming with a criminal enterprise indictment our nation’s biggest bankers – now it’s those at JPMorgan Chase & Co. – utilizing the Mother of all indictments – RICO – so the DOJ can fine tune the intricate legal tactics those forces loyal to Donald Trump would need to use in prosecuting the “Deep State” operatives who tried to overthrow him? 

Or, could this be the result of the rest of the world simply growing cold to the idea of U.S. global hegemony based on their control of the U.S. dollar – the rest of the world having told the United States and President Trump to his face – and finally overcoming the deaf ear of previous American administrations to the major complaints and tears from the rest of the world. the destruction and grief we’ve caused everywhere, that the U.S. needs to clean up our financial act or the rest of the world is in fact going to turn their backs on us and play without us? They will prosper while we’ll just have ourselves to blame.

THE REST OF THE WORLD BUYS GOLD

The rest of the world is buying gold.  Those who live outside the tentacle-like grip of Western banking control have already made “de-dollarization” a central banking reality and major American family financial concern.  Europe, China, and Russia are de-dollarizing as quickly as humanely possible, as is much of the rest of the world.  They’re buying up gold and other valuable assets, while we’re busy printing up more paper, because that’s all we’ve got left.

The practice of raising and lowering interests rates has failed to inflate global markets and now there’s nothing left but negative interest rates spreading across the globe like financial cancer and printing money.  Until there’s no money left to print.  We’re facing a major lack of liquidity like the central banks have never needed to address.

Or could this possibly, maybe, just possibly be about the top secret, most powerful central banker of all central bankers having just sent another top secret private message to the United States Attorney General’s office reading them the global financial riot act.

Is it possible that U.S. Department of Justice – and President Trump – have received yet another Official Communication by Official Diplomatic Pouch from The International Treasury Control – this one about all of this manipulation going on with central banks and the World’s Gold?  I wonder what my good friend international precious metals connoisseur and consultant Gerrit Visser thinks about all of this.
